Puzzler Collection 

 

Some reviewers knock the bargain priced video games. They expect a whole lot from a game selling for less than half of "high profile" video game releases. Family Friendly Gaming follows the Biblical of example of the parable of the talents. It would be like expecting a high school football team to defeat a pro team. So that has never made sense to us here at Family Friendly Gaming. Puzzler Collection contains over two thousand puzzles. Crossword, Sudoku, Wordsearch, and Fitword are the puzzle games included in Nintendo Wii video game.

The graphics in Puzzler Collection are a major letdown. There are not a lot of colors, and the entire look is pretty bland. Even worse the Sudoku game is difficult to tell the different numbers thanks to the font, and color used. None of the other games have this problem though. It is important to mention that I did not find any offensive images while playing Puzzler Collection for the Wii.

Puzzler Collection is also lacking in the sounds department. There are special effect sounds in the game, and also some relaxing music. To be brutally honest I was hoping for some more musical content. There are some alcohol and tobacco references in some of the games. Crosswords in newspapers also have this kind of content, but it is important to bring up so there is no surprises when you decide to purchase this game.

Puzzle video games have some of the best replay value. Puzzler Collection is no exception. There are enough puzzles, and different kinds to keep most gamers busy for weeks. There is not a lot of unlockables, however there are difficulty levels to keep the most hardcore gamer engaged for quite some time. I really appreciated the hints included which sped up some of the puzzles for me personally.

Puzzler Collection has average controls. I ran into an occasional issue with the controls while playing Puzzler Collection on the Wii. They were few and far between though. The control scheme for some of the games could have been better, but I have also seen worse. Like I said in the first sentence of this paragraph, the controls are average. I had fun playing this game. If you are into games that make you think, I believe you will as well.

Puzzler Collection is a wonderful game that teaches players to think about what they are doing, and to concentrate. Attention to detail is an important skill that gamers can work on with Puzzler Collection for the Wii. I would love to see sequels to this franchise, especially if they include additional puzzle games. Puzzler Collection is one of those games that fits the target audience quite well.
